Here’s the design for our main character. Great work by Erika on creating these images.
We went for a Clint Eastwood-ish look, with open clean lines and colors. Clint Eastwood was a no-brainer… after having watched the Man With No Name trilogy over a hundred times, I can’t think of any other looks for a main character in a western.
Oh, for those in the discussions, our man is not a smoker. I know every western gunfighter worth his salt and riding to a Morricone theme would roll his own smokes. But we’re sort of anti-smoking (except for the celebratory cigar, of course).
Anyway, here’s our man, in the opening scenes, when he’s challenged by a new gunfighter.
And here he is moving into his fighting stance, getting his overcoat out of the way. Cool, eh?

A quick note on the game I’m working on. Its a Wild West type gun duel.
You’re Clint Eastwood. Or Lee Van Cleef. Or Yosemite Sam. Whoever you want to be. And you have to work your way up as a gun-fighter in the wild west.
I’ll post information about the gameplay, artwork, and music in a while. Most of it is in a fairly advanced stage, I just need to find time to write about it.

I’ve been on Twitter for the last couple of years, in favor of blogging. For a lot of topics, where only quick updates were needed, Twitter was working quite well. And laziness helped – its far easier to send out tweets than to write a blog post!
I’m back now, to chronicle a journey to make an iPhone game.
I’ve always loved video games. Being drawn into a completely different world. Expanding my mind, letting go of reality for a little while. So now its time to work on a game myself!
This is definitely a first, and I’m a big data-collection and incremental-approach kind of guy. So the first game will be a short and quick one, designed to be available to the public within 1-2 months.
I’ll keep posting more about the game, right here, regularly. And to quote Vic Romano; Don’t Get Eliminated!
